Actually the only machine that can read an .ART file is the Artista 200/730 machine. It reads both .ART V4 and .EXP. The older machines, 165 thru 185 actually read EXP. The .ART cards we purchased were really EXP files. When we downloaded files from the internet in ART format, we used our software to send to the machine or to our Personal Design Card. The software converted these ART formats to EXP automatically. The 8 Series and I believe the new 7 Series reads both .EXP and .DST. We purchase designs in .ART format and use our software to send to the machine/USB stick of our choice and the software automatically does the conversions needed for that machine.
I stand by my statement that all Bernina embroidery machines read .EXP. If available, I always purchase in .ART format and let my software do the thinking for me.
Yes HIA provides ART format. It was mistakenly left out of the latest free download.

From: Roxanne Schnitzler Not ALL Bernina's will take EXP, some of the older ones take ART instead. I
will have to check once I'm back at the shop as to who's coming to the HIA
trunk showand which machines they have as I know some of my customers still use ART
format. Do HIA designs not come with ART?
